...Trail Of Dead live in the Courtyard for Fly TV. I'm there somewhere. It's just like 'Where's Wally'!

...Trail Of Dead live in the Courtyard for Fly TV. I'm there somewhere. It's just like 'Where's Wally'!

As promised, the video of Bells Of Creation live from the Courtyard for Fly TV by the awesome …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead. For a further two tracks head on down to the Fly TV website.. It’s well worth it.

Bells Of Creation is an epic track off of the most recent …Trail Of Dead album, The Century Of Self, which was released February 17th on Richter Scale Records. The track opens with a chiming ostinato piano chord, which repeats for most of the track and seems to represent the Bells in question. The track’s steady 2/4 beat and heavy guitar / key stabs are full of grandeur, power and promise: fitting for the song’s title, and the chaotic and tumultuous piano interlude evokes almost Fantasia-esque (for anyone else who remembers that Disney gem) images of some omnipotent being summoning and cajoling the elements to create Earth (the title of the track probably isn’t that literal, but that’s the image I get!)

Regardless of my ramblings about imagery and such, it is an immensely powerful performance, despite the fact that the Art Rockers were possibly a little uncomfortable in their settings, surrounded by MAMA employees, and playing acoustic (one of the guitars, brilliantly, even has the price tag still on if you look closely!) Prepare to be in awe!
